Covid-19 information

We ask that you wear a face mask upon arrival, and when moving around our centre – both in the training room, and communal area. For further details, see Covid-19 measures.

At the Holiday Inn centre, you don’t need to report to the hotel reception. If you walk past the reception and continue straight on to the corridor in front of you, our room is second on your right. One of our team will be waiting there to meet you. At the back of the training room, there’s a refreshment area offering tea, coffee, chilled water and biscuits. We ask that only one person at a time be present in this area.
